30-year old shooting guard Tony Allen is off to a slow start offensively for the Grizzlies. He has played in 12 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 24.1 minutes, 7.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 1.9 steals per game. But, he is only shooting 36.8% from the floor so far this year, and that just isn’t getting the job done. That being said, Allen’s game is playing defense and I don’t see him losing minutes if he continues to struggle with his shot. I just see him shooting less if he doesn’t straighten things out offensively.
